D Bm F#m
Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup
Em7 A7
They slither while they pass they slip away across the universe
D Bm F#m
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind
Em7 Gm
Possessing and caressing me

D A
Jai guru deva om
A7
Nothing's gonna change my world
G D
Nothing's gonna change my world
A7
Nothing's gonna change my world
G D
Nothing's gonna change my world


Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes
They call me on and on across the universe
Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letterbox
They tumble blindly as they make their way across the universe

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world


Sounds of laughter, shades of earth are ringing through my opened ears
Inciting and inviting me
Limitless, undying love which shines around me like a million suns
And calls me on and on across the universe


Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Jai guru deva
